American Ballet Theatre's 2014 spring season at the Met has a little bit of everything: knights in shining armor, exotic Indian temple dancers, dolls that come to life and doomed love affairs. Since 1940, ABT has graced the stages of the greatest venues around the world, creating a dance tradition that brings joy to old fans of ballet and creates new fans. This year's program starts with Don Quixote, a whimsical tale that explodes with one show-stopping performance after another, from the bravura dancing of the fiery toreador Espada to a colorful caravan of gypsies. Then it's off to the sweeping vistas and grand temples of mystical India for the great Russian classic, La Bayadere, a glorious epic of eternal love and godly revenge. After that, it's back to Europe for Coppelia, the perfect introduction to ballet. This fairy tale story introduces us to Coppelia, a beautiful doll so lifelike that she causes a lot of trouble between two young lovers. Finally, there's Kenneth MacMillan's dramatic masterwork, Manon, set to Massenet's lush score. This tragic romance soars to searing theatrical heights as the beautiful courtesan Manon chooses between the temptations of wealth and true love. Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: Big Apple CircusAs a leading presenter of family entertainment and a not-for-profit performing arts institution, our nationwide performances and community programs have made our 34-year history far-reaching and full.
It all began in Kent, England, in 1974, when American entertainers and Big Apple Circus co-founders Paul Binder and Michael Christensen became juggling partners and took to the street corners of Europe. Their comedic juggling act was a hit, and they soon found themselves on the stage of the presitigous Nouveau Cirque de Paris. They returned home to America in 1976 with a vision: to entertain and improve the lives of millions. One year later, they found a site for the first tent-raising in Battery Park, New York, and went on to create the award-winning, not-for-profit Big Apple Circus.
